What kind of watch does Jason Bourne wear?

Jason Bourne (Played by Matt Damon) wears a TAG Heuer Link Chronograph in The Bourne Quadrilogy. Jason Bourne is the main protagonist in a series of novels written originally by Robert Ludlum, and then continued on Eric Van Lustbader on the event of Mr. Ludlum’s death.

In 2002 the first of the Jason Bourne novels – The Bourne Identity – was adapted to a featured film bearing the same name and staring Matt Damon as the titular anti-hero Jason Bourne. Bourne is the pseudonym of secret Treadstone agent David Webb, who suffers from a bout of amnesia and must work quickly to piece his life together.

After falling off the grid and losing his memory, Agent Webb loses contact with the CIA and his handler in the Treadstone program. They – incorrectly – assume that he has betrayed his country and send men after him. Webb himself thinks he is his cover identity – Jason Bourne – and doesn’t understand why people are after him.

Once he learns of his real identity and the massive overreach of the Treadstone program and the CIA, Bourne spends the rest of the series attempting to dismantle the agency, who in turn tries to destroy him.

Starting in that film and moving through the original trilogy (The Bourne Identity, Supremacy, & Ultimatum) and the latest fifth installment (Jason Bourne), Damon is seen wearing the same TAG Heuer Link Chronograph.

Bourne Wearing the TAG Heuer Link Chronograph

The TAG Heuer Link Chronograph is a clean, professional watch put out by the TAG Heuer company that looks to stack up against watches like the Omega Seamaster. The Link Chronograph features a 41mm stainless steel case and stainless band with a uniquely molded link, giving the watch a signature look.

The entire watch is stainless steel silver with a black face and silver lettering. The TAG Heuer logo is located at the twelve o’clock position. As the name states, it is a chronograph watch with chronograph functions. The chronographic complications include a twelve hour, sixty second, and 1/10th of a second hands located at the 10 o’clock, 6 o’clock, and 2 o’clock positions, respectively.

The watch also features an easy to read date complication between the 4 and 5 positions. All of the hour markers are silver ticks with luminescent dots above them, and smaller luminescent ticks that serve as minute markers. The bezel is unidirectional with a luminescent dot at the top position.

The Link Chronograph has a sapphire crystal that is glare and scratch resistant for easy reading and runs on a swiss quartz engine – so it will require a battery, but won’t lose time like an automatic watch.

The TAG Heuer Link Chronograph that Jason Bourne wears is rated water resistance at a depth of 20 BAR/200Meters – or 660 feet. It is rated for recreational scuba use and should be just fine to take swimming.

All in all, the TAG Heuer Link Chronograph is an impressive watch fit for use by impressive individuals such as Jason Bourne – and you! And coming in at $2,485.00 it is about a third of the price you’d pay for a Bond watch!

What kind of watch does John Wick wear?

Keanu Reeves wore a Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate in John Wick and John Wick Chapter 2. If you don’t know, John Wick (and its sequel) are break out action noir flicks featuring Keanu Reeves as the film’s eponymous hero – John Wick.

The films center around retired assassin John Wick – who just wants to be left alone after his wife dies, but keeps getting drawn back into the seedy underworld of assassins. The films take places within 4 days of each other, according to the writers and directors, and really tell one long story.

After Wick’s wife dies, he is given a puppy to keep him company. Between that and his car, he has enough to at least keep him occupied. That is, until some thugs steal his car and kill his dog. Wick goes on a rampage destroying a Russian mob boss and his entire family in revenge. In Chapter 2, word of John’s rampage gets around and causes some folks to come knocking, forcing him to pick up his guns again and shoot his way back to retirement.

In the movies, Wick is seen wearing a $8,695.00 . Carl F. Bucherer is a Swiss watch maker that is based in Lucerne and was founded in 1888. The Manero AutoDate is a beautiful brushed 18 karat rose gold watch with a 42mm case and a sapphire crystal.

This luxurious watch features the Carl F. Bucherer logo at the 12 o’clock position, and a date complication at the 3 o’clock position. The hands and indices are all made out of rose gold, with the hands having the distinction of being luminescent. The watch also features luminescent dot markers at each of the hour spaces.

Because the watch features a self winding automatic engine, the second hand sweeps the face instead of ticking. The watch is able to carry a reserve power of 38 hours, and is water resistant to 3 atmospheres (about 30 meters, or 100 feet).

Because the crystal is sapphire, it will be scratch resistant. It also comes with an anti-reflective coating on both sides to help cut out the glare during day use, making the watch easy and comfortable to read.

The strap is brown alligator leather with a rose gold pin and buckle. This beautiful watch is classy, stylish, and perfect for any assassin looking to leave an impression. This watch can be purchased on Amazon for only $8,695.00 , and shipped directly to you!

What watch does Ryan Gosling (The Driver) wear in Drive?

Ryan Gosling wears a custom Patek Philipe in Drive.

It is not very often that a watch takes on such a big role in a movie. However, the character that Ryan Gosling plays in Drive is based on a very particular book character. The character is not someone that owns a lot, but he was passed down a great watch from his father that he treasured. Obviously, that means that the watch really needs to stand out in the film. The classic Patek Phillipe watch that Gosling is wearing in the film is absolutely the perfect choice.

This is not a watch that you can go out and buy, because it is not an actual model for sale. The actual watch is a very simple model, with a classic look and a brown leather strap. Gosling does not actually wear the original watch that much in the film because the intensity of the stunts would have broken it. There were a few replicas built to handle the stunts. The reason the watch stands out so much in the film is because it is very different from the big driving watches that are normally worn by stunt drivers. This is a simple looking, classic style watch that is very believable as something that would be passed from father to son.

This watch is small, which helps it complement the personality of the character because of his desire to keep things simple. There are very few features on the watch, though it does have a sub-dial with a seconds hand. The character in the movie has to keep track of five-minute time periods before criminals return to his car, which would make a chronograph function extremely useful for the work that he is doing.

Overall this is a watch that is focused on looking great and not being too flashy. Since it is a rather expensive timepiece, it is perfect to imagine it being a family heirloom and the character’s one truly prized possession. Since it is so crucial to Gosling’s character in the film, the watch truly takes on a shining role, which is incredible for such an understated piece of technology.

What kind of watch does Denzel Washington wear in Flight?

When it comes to style and class, Denzel has set himself apart from most, even in the competitive world of Hollywood. Flight is a masterpiece, and the watch that Denzel is wearing as the character Whip Whitaker might surprise you. The watch in the film is a Timex Expedition Rugged Analog T49831.

The reason this watch surprises many people, is because Denzel is playing a pilot, so it might be assumed that he is going to be wearing something more expensive and luxurious. Despite the fact that he is not strapped for cash, Whitaker is wearing a rather inexpensive Timex watch that is not too flashy. The watch itself is black, has a black strap and has the look of the classic, durable watch.

The Timex Expedition Rugged Analog T49831 is a watch that you can find easily that provides incredible style, durability, and performs well, but it is also incredibly affordable. This men’s watch from Timex is perfect for anybody that needs a watch that can endure tough work or spending time in the great outdoors. With its clear numbering on the outside for every 5 minute/second mark, and all of the even hours marked in bold white, you will never have any trouble checking the time.

With a digital date window to help you keep track of the day, luminous hands to help you see what time it is even in the darker lighting, and even more so the indiglo night light keeping it visible at all times. With a black resin case, a black resin strap, and a crisp buckle clasp, you can always count on it to be comfortable and durable under any circumstances.

The strap for the Timex Expedition Rugged Analog T49831 is 10” long and provides a nice fit for almost everyone. Its features include being water resistant for up to 50 meters, so it is great for swimming, or any other water related activities. I am sure that Denzel’s character did not want to think about landing a plane on water, but if he had to swim, he would have been prepared.

As was mentioned before, this watch is great for the adventures that life brings. One of the best ways that this watch lends itself to the person on the go is that beyond its durability, it also has great readability. With large numbering, a clear hour hand, minute hand, and second hand it has one of the easiest analog displays for anyone to read no matter what they are doing. Taking it one step further, this incredible and affordable watch is just as easy to read at night. Providing you with an indiglo night light and luminous hands, you can perfectly read this watch at night. This easy readability in the dark was probably another thing that a pilot like Whitaker enjoyed, and if you know that character, the easy readability was a must!

One thing that has not been mentioned yet is the rotating bezel feature on the Timex Expedition Rugged Analog T49831. This is great for anyone that needs to keep track of short periods of time easily, and with the simple analog reads on this watch you can do this easier than ever. It was likely a great feature for a pilot that needs to keep track of the time intervals involved in a flight. Since the watch is also water resistant for up to 50 meters, you might like the rotating bezel to help keep swimming times as well.

This watch is clearly a wonderful and reliable option for someone looking for a clean and professional looking watch. The most surprising thing about the Timex Expedition Rugged Analog T49831 is that it is so incredibly affordable. You can find this watch for $32.00 and there is nothing better in the world of watches than finding one that performs at a high level and is not going to make your wallet too light. This watch is perfect for pretty much any budget, and because it is so incredibly durable, you are not going to have to replace it anytime soon.

 

What kind of watch did Deadpool wear in the movie?

DeadPool wears a kids Adventure Time watchThis is something, actually, that upset me. DeadPool was a massively popular superhero movie released in 2016 starring Ryan Reynolds. Its rare to see an established character married so perfectly with the actor that portrays them. Robert Downey Jr., for all intents and purposes, is Tony Stark. Likewise, Ryan Reynolds is Wade Wilson.

In the movie, Reynolds plays Wilson, a mercenary who gets a cancer diagnosis shortly after falling in love. In order to save his own life and be with the woman he loves, he volunteers for a black-market operation to make himself a self-healing mutant. His healing factor fights the cancer and keeps him alive, but it also horribly disfigures him in the process and drives him mentally insane.

The character has a huge appeal on the internet for being a bit of a jackass and is known for continually breaking the fourth wall. This played out very well in the movie and made it insanely popular. So popular, in fact, it raked in $760,000,000 on a $50,000,000 budget.

In the movie, DeadPool can be spotted wearing a watch while in a cab with driver Dopinder.

deadpool-watch

This is sad to me because the watch he’s wearing is a kid’s Adventure Time watch. This is a quartz movement, plastic case, plastic or rubber strapped $20 timepiece. It’s made for kids under 10 years old who enjoy a cartoon.

But now, because it’s the “DeadPool watch“, you will be hard pressed to find one for less than $38.98 . There is absolutely no quality to this watch. It was made to be worn by children who would, I assume, break it within a matter of months, whereupon it would be replaced easily by their parents because it’s just a cheap, plastic kids watch.

In fact, as one reviewer of the watch on Amazon points out, you can’t even swap the battery on it, you simply have to buy a new one when the battery dies. The reviewer also points out that his son had one of these watches, and it broke, and he can no longer replace it because the movie turned it into a novelty item.

The cheapest one I could find was $38.98 on amazon (here).

If you’re looking to buy this watch for a cosplay, it may be worth it do you. It might be better to get a broken one off of eBay, or something similar though. If you’re looking for a watch for your children, this will unfortunately not be the one.

What kind of watch did The Great Gatsby wear?

Jay Gatsby wore a Longines Evidenza. Or maybe he didn’t. Perhaps he wore a Rolex, or maybe a Patek Philippe, or a Gruen. And that’s sort of the point.

The Great Gatsby is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s magnum opus, a story about love, obsession, greed, and the roaring 20’s. The story follows Nick Carraway, an insurance salesman who moves to the fictional Long Island suburb of “West Egg“, and rents a modest house next to the mansion of a reclusive and mysterious millionaire. Carraway notices that the millionaire, rumored to be Jay Gatsby, throws lavish parties, but rarely attends them. Over the course of the summer, Nick is invited to one of Gatsby’s parties, where he meets the man himself. Gatsby says he recognizes Nick from their same division in WWI and confesses that he is in love with Nick’s cousin Daisy. In the end, we find that the money and parties and all of the extravagance with which the great Gatsby lives his life is all a ruse so that he can charm Daisy and make her fall in love with him.

To this end, we see a lot of extravagant wealth in Jay Gatsby’s life, but not a lot of it is finely detailed. Specifically, his watch is never mentioned. But because he’s a fictional character, you can imagine on him whatever watch you would think fits his persona.

What kind of watch did Robert Redford wear in The Great Gatsby?

what-kind-of-watch-does-the-great-gatsby-wear

Robert Redford took the role of Jay Gatsby to the big screen in 1974. In his depiction, Gatsby doesn’t wear a wristwatch at all. Instead, he wears a nice pocket watch, though we don’t really see it and have no way of knowing what kind of watch it really is.

What kind of watch did Leo Dicaprio wear in The Great Gatsby?

men's art deco watch

Dicaprio’s take on Jay Gatsby wore another very plausible watch for the millionaire: A silver, square-faced art deco watch – a very JFK timepiece. Art Deco was a very popular style in the 1920’s that found it’s way into everything from architecture to interior design. The Art Deco style symbolized technology and progress, and later became intrinsically connected with opulent wealth. Because of this, it is very likely that Jay Gatsby, if he wore a wristwatch, would have worn an art deco style wristwatch.

The watch that Dicaprio wears in the movie, however, is not a real watch. There are multiple shots of the watch from which you should be able to identify it, but upon inspection the watch does not appear to have any brand markings or engravings. Other than the tallies and hands, in fact, the watch is completely blank and devoid of any kind of mark. Tiffany & Co., in conjunction with the movie, released a limited run “Jay Gatsby Collection” of men and women’s jewelry, but there was not a watch in the set.

If you’re looking for a similar watch to the one featured in the movie, we recommend the Longines Evidenza.

What kind of watch does Tony Stark wear?

Tony Star wears the Bvlgari Men’s Diagono Chronograph in Iron Man.

Genius billionaire playboy philanthropist Tony Stark must obviously wear a pretty amazing watch, right? At first guess I assumed he wore a custom job, sort of like Bond’s TV watch, that would allow him to communicate with J.A.R.V.I.S., or control his Iron Man suits. But it turns out that he actually just wears a regular watch, and not even a particularly expensive one. That fits with Stark’s personality, though. He is incredibly wealthy, but very pragmatic. As an engineer he puts a value on function, and the Bvlgari Diagono Chronograph is the perfect blend of style and capability.

The Diagono Chronograph has a stainless steel case and comes standard with a black leather band. The watch features Arabic numerals to mark the 6 and 12 o’clock positions, with date displays between the 4 and 5 o’clock positions. Because it’s the Chronograph model, it has two sub-dials displaying 30 minutes and 60 seconds. The bezel is fixed stainless steel that is engraved with the Bulgari brand, “Bvlgari”. The watch is faced with scratch resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The Diagono Chronograph is rated water resistant at 30 meters (about 100 feet).

What type of watch does tony soprano wear

What kind of watch did Tony Soprano wear?

Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) wore a Rolex Day-Date President in The Sopranos.

The Sopranos was an HBO hit series and was one of the first successful TV shows to get the audience to cheer on a villain as the main character. Without James Gandolfini’s amazing and award-winning work as Tony Soprano, we would never get to see amazing and complex characters in shows like Deadwood or Breaking Bad. I would even say that the show paved the way for lesser, but still popular successors, like Dexter Morgan.

Of course, running a top mafia family can be tough work, and you need a watch that is both durable and stylish. Something that is function as both a timepiece and a status symbol. Soprano had that in the $25,597.95 Rolex Day-Date President.

The Day-Date President is an 18 karat gold watch (band and casing) with an anti-reflective sapphire face over an analog display. The watch is automatic and self winding, never requiring batteries, and is rated to be waterproof at 100m (330 feet).

The watch carries a high price tag for several reasons. The sapphire crystal is quite an expensive way to face a watch, not to mention the fact that every visible surface of this particular watch is made from 18 karat gold. The Day-Date President features both the day and the date displayed at the 12 o’clock and 3 o’clock positions, respectively.

This is an exquisitely crafted and beautiful timepiece and one that’s well worth having in your collection – if you can afford it.

What kind of watch did Macgyver wear

What kind of watch did Macgyver wear

Macgyver was most commonly seen wearing the Timex Camper Watch

If you were a kid in the seventies, eighties, and early 90s, you probably loved Macgyver. The guy was known for being able to build anything he needed out of whatever was available to aid him in whatever situation he got trapped in. This ability of his has spawned all manner of ridiculous meme across the internet and even its own popular phrase: To “Macgyver” something together. Angus Macgyver was a secret government agent and scientist who solved problems with his swiss army knife, scientific resourcefulness, and a limitless supply of moxie.

The watch that was featured on his wrist most frequently was then called the Timex Military Field watch, but has since been rebranded as the “Timex Camper Watch“. The Camper Watch is a simple, 35mm plastic case watch with a nylon strap. The watch features quartz movement and an analog display powered by a single battery. Perhaps the most confusing aspect of this little timepiece is that it has a water glyph clearly printed on it, and is listed as a “rugged outdoor watch”, but is absolutely not water resistant. This is a perfect watch if you’re looking to dress up as Macgyver, or if you just need something quick and simple to get you through the day.
